  1. Rescue very nearly outclasses every other cutesy platformer on Xbox. [Nov 2004, p.90]
  2. 80
    The frustration many hit during punishing sections in this sort of game is never allowed to develop. All the skill moves still require the right touch; the designers simply opened the window of what constitutes the "right" touch just enough to let everyone in (with some practice).
  3. An A-grade platform adventure romp that is enjoyable for anyone regardless of their age. It’s a bit too easy for veteran gamers, and the scenery pop-ups can distract, but neither detracts from the top-notch experience.
  4. The separate cart racing game is a nice addition, weapon pickups and all, although you’ll need to run a few races to get used to the wider turning radius of the different carts.
  5. It’s free-roaming landscape, charming characters, solid platform action and fun multiplayer cart racing mode will hook you right away, mates.
  6. The game’s audio package perfectly complements the joyful atmosphere presented visually.
  7. 76
    Ty 2's uncomplicated game play, straightforward story, and friendly quality create a fun experience for younger gamers and could provide a couple of hours distraction for older players.
  8. 75
    More boomerangs, much more diverse gameplay.
  9. To say Ty 2 is big would be an understatement. Krome has Super Sized it, spreading their funky animal kingdom as far and wide as the outback itself. [Dec 2004, p.81]

    It's very much a typical platformer. But it's humor makes it an above average game.

    I played the first part of the game. It looks good and is fun to play. There's probably some things that are not entirely perfect, but I I played the first part of the game. It looks good and is fun to play. There's probably some things that are not entirely perfect, but I like it very much. I would've like a camera that's locked behind your character, but most games lack this. Many thanks to the creators of this game. Fritz Full Review »
